MEMBERSHIP

There are four (4) main membership groups in the organization (Rural Doctors Research Team, Rural Doctors Clinical Review Team, Rural Doctors Humanitarian Community and Rural Doctors Volunteer Network), with different objectives and activities but all working to support our programs and humanitarian interventions.
